NBA Rumors – San Antonio Spurs Signing David West & LaMarcus Aldridge is Out of Character

Posted on 7 Jul, 2015, by in NBA

We rarely see the San Antonio Spurs take part in the free agency bonanza, whether they have the cap space or not. In 2015, everything changed. They went after LaMarcus Aldridge, the marquee signing of the offseason in the NBA, and also landed David West, the surprise free agent of the summer who had other options with contenders and possibly for more money.

Posted on 2 Jul, 2015, by in NBA

It’s not quite known where David West is going next season, but it’s not going to be another year with the Indiana Pacers and certainly not joining the New York Knicks, a team anyone with an ambition of winning anything anytime soon is staying away from. More

Posted on 28 Jun, 2015, by in NBA

It’s not going to be long before David West is done with free agency and signed with a team. It’s not going to be the Indiana Pacers. Perhaps the New York Knicks? More

Indiana Pacers – Breaking the Glass Ceiling

Posted on 1 Jun, 2014, by in NBA

The Indiana Pacers aren’t a minority in the NBA, but there seems to be an impassable barrier that keeps holding them back from reaching the NBA finals. The question that needs to be asked – is it another team getting in their way, or are their other problems, internal, from the coaching of Frank Vogel, to the problematic Roy Hibbert and Lance Stephenson, or maybe the not quite superstar Paul George, or maybe even the decision making of Larry Bird, resulting in a bench that is completely ignored throughout the playoffs?

NBA Playoffs – Indiana Pacers Play Dirty, Miami Heat Miss Opportunity

Posted on 29 May, 2014, by in NBA

In a game 5 with wild momentum shifts, an incredible shooting performance from Paul George and an astonishingly bad one from LeBron James when he was actually on the floor, the Indiana Pacers managed to beat the Miami Heat 93-90 and stay alive in the Eastern Conference Finals, heading for a road game with the Heat leading 3-2 in the series.

NBA Playoffs – Miami Heat Defense is About Speed & Length, Not Size

Posted on 28 May, 2014, by in NBA

It’s pretty much true for most teams in the NBA, but especially when it comes to the Miami Heat: When they get their way defensively, everything opens up for them on offense. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have open floor opportunities to take advantage of and open three-point shots are created. The Heat’s defense works on speed and length instead of size, which is something they willingly give up to the Indiana Pacers. More

NBA Playoffs – Paul George Making Excuses, LeBron James Still Isn’t Impressed

Posted on 27 May, 2014, by in NBA

Losers make excuses, winners make adjustments. That’s an actual saying, and clearly Paul George, contradicting himself all throughout the press conference coming after the Indiana Pacers lost to the Miami Heat in game 4 of the Eastern conference, hasn’t heard of it. I’m not sure LeBron James has either, but his coach probably has, and it was quite clear he wasn’t impressed with another player from the inferior team (so far) trying to engage in some sort of trash talk.

NBA Playoffs – Miami Heat Finding Answers, Indiana Pacers Keep Struggling

Posted on 25 May, 2014, by in NBA

The Eastern Conference Finals is a perfect example of just how much creative and good coaching makes a difference, and what playoff basketball is all about – adjustments, between and in games. The Miami Heat started out in a disastrous way, but the right modification from Erik Spoelstra allowed LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to take over the game, while the Indiana Pacers couldn’t react to the changes with their one way style of basketball, losing 99-87 and falling to a 2-1 deficit in the series.
